I vote Meghnaad and Suloachana, because Suloachana is said to be a pativrata naari, but we hardly know why. She is only mentioned once or twice.

Lakshman and Urmila is my choice.

The information on the other couples is available - only they have not been shown or portrayed. But information on Lakshman and Urmila and their sacrifice for their elder siblings have not been written about and most of the times very childishly portrayed.

I voted Maharaj Janak and Mata Sunaina... he was a rajrishi and had struck a perfect balance between living in the world and yet, in terms of spiritual knowledge, being above and beyond it... he was a householder, a king, and a detached/desireless sage all at once... so his marriage would probably be the perfect example how marital life should be.

Shartrughna and Shrutakirti.
 
Lakshman and Urmila are talked about because of Urmila's sacrifice, and Bharat-Mandavi are also given attention because of the incidents involving Bharat and the raaj-gadi. Bharat took a vow to live the life of an ascetic for years and to live as Ram would in the forest. Mandavi didn't accompany him although she wanted to, and her sacrifice is also talked about, as I have seen in RS's Ramayan.
 
But Shatrughna and Shrutakirti are rarely given dialogues and portrayals, and very little about their characters is analyzed or taken into account...it's like they're just there.
 
^^ That's just individually. Nothing really is said about them as a couple.
 
I'm really interested in learning more about these two...wish I could just call them up and ask for an interview LOL LOL

My choice is Lakshman and Urmila.
Lakshman is known for his sacrifice and his for his devotion towards his elder brother and sister-in-law, but nothing is written about Urmila, that is why she is known as"kabye upekshita" ie, neglected in the epic.
